MY17 GT-R Driving Event at Spa Francorchamps - 13 June - Reports & Pictures


Recommended Posts

Hi all, a big shout out to Nissan, William and John for sorting out what was a truly memorable couple of days also a really big thank-you to all the really decent friendly nissansportz members who made me so wellcome, if there is a better car club around I would be astonished. The trip down to Spa was awesome with my plucky 350 hanging onto the coatails of the Jag and a fleet of 370s and GTRs ! I am waiting in trepidation for some foreign correspondance with the French speed ing ticket authorities !

 

Once again thank-you and hope to meet up with you all soon.

Sorry for the late reply due to sunning myself in Jamaica.

 

Thank you to John for assisting to confirm my place on the trip of a life time. I had fantastic time from leaving the GB through France & Belgium to Spa.

 

The day was great I was surprised when we went on the 105 km road trip with John of GT-Roc when they said just follow the sat nave as I thought some one would have been with us. John did the first stint this was my first hot ride of the day as he is a race instructor. I enjoyed the drive but did not push the car to anywhere near its limits.

 

On the track it was better to push the car a little more and see the 911's jumping out of the way on corners when they seen us coming up behind not that I am that experienced. Its a shame that we did not have more laps on the track thanks to the 911's

 

I would like to say a big thank you to William & Nissan for the whole weekend with a nice hotel and meals.

 

Has any one got their in car footage if so where did you get it.

 

I have attached some pics I have a small video but it is too large to upload.

 

Hope to see you all again soon

 

Paul

I've not seen mine yet. It could be in the backlog of emails from my week away (many, many hundreds :doh:) but I haven't been able to find it.

 

What is the subject title of the email folks? :)

'A standard limited edition Yellow 370Z* with a plethora of minor bespoke mods'

*one of 40 don't you know!

Wow time really does fly.

I do hope there is a end of production version perhaps a cut price track edition with a few Nismo bits for 90k or a Z tune?
